Balboa Value Based Care – Participating in the Medicare Comprehensive Kidney Care Contracting Model

Welcome to
Balboa Value Based Care

Balboa Value Based Care is a Kidney Contracting Entity owned by Balboa Nephrology Medical Group, formed to participate in the Medicare sponsored Comprehensive Kidney Care Contracting Model. This model is focused on late stage chronic kidney disease care and increasing home dialysis and transplantation.

We are serving aligned Medicare Beneficiaries in San Diego County, Imperial County and Orange County.

Balboa Value Based Care is partnering with Medicare in the Kidney Care Choices Model.


Kidney Care Choices educates patients about kidney disease and manages care by providing resources.


Kidney Care Choices can support the transition onto dialysis and helps throughout the transplant process.


Your provider choices aren’t limited and your Medicare benefits do not change.

Our Mission: Your Care

Working Together With Medicare

Balboa Value Based Care brings together the talents of Balboa Nephrology Medical Group, Fresenius Kidney Care, Sharp Memorial Hospital Kidney and Pancreas Transplant Center and LightBridge Medical Associates to manage and improve care for our Medicare beneficiaries.

Through this innovative Medicare program these providers will collaborate to delay the on-set of dialysis for Chronic Kidney Disease beneficiaries, increase the number of beneficiaries dialyzing at home and increase kidney transplants.

Participating beneficiaries have access to a variety of educational and care resources to help them on their kidney care journey, along with patient to patient mentoring services provided by ReMend.

Experience the peace of mind that comes with having an entire team of healthcare professionals there for you any time.

Patient Services

  • ReMend is a nonprofit organization focusing on encouragement and guidance through a patient’s kidney disease journey.
  • ReMend’s mission is to support and help empower patients diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) to take charge of their kidney health.
  • ReMend does this by coordinating meaningful conversations with other kidney patients – ReMend Mentors who have “been there and done that.” Together, building resiliency and strength. Reach out today.
